Kilbane and Boa Morte closing in on Hull move

Tigers boss Phil Brown confirmed the reports earlier today.

Brown said: “We have made progress, things are ongoing.

“The clubs have agreed terms on Luis Boa Morte and we are trying to agree terms on Kevin Kilbane, on a personal front as well.

“They can’t play any part in the Newcastle game but hopefully by Thursday or Friday they will bear some fruit.

“We said at the start of the season we wanted to flood the place with Premier League quality and both those players have it in abundance. To get that quality of player in to Hull City would be great for the football club.”
